For the Journey – Music and Lyric by Steve Bell
For my Godsons: Joe-Michelle Fontaine and Will Gibbs 

May the Lord bless and keep you
May His face shine upon you
May His graciousness be like an endless stream
May the Lord show His favour
To your house and your neighbor
Until last remaining strains of striving cease

May He grant you peace
’cause in my heart
there’s a sadness building up
Every turn adds to the cup
As the losses match the measure of my gains
In the shadow of this curse
Where the best implies the worst
If you’re like me you’ll need to hear somebody pray
